The Nitro team was just up at Kitz, shredding the amazing park.
Have a look here to see Marc play with a few of the amazing features that await you up there!
See you all in Kitz the weekend of May 1st for the Volcom Banked Slalom.
Volcom’s Global Peanut Butter And Rail Jam Championships introduced a mainline of youth that will one day rule the snowboard world on Saturday April 18, 2015 at Mammoth Mountain, CA.
Competitors gathered around for a riders meeting and a group photo before the festivities began.
The PBRJ tour has once again hit a milestone as it celebrates its 15th year of letting the kids ride free. This heavily contested event showcases the best rail riders on the planet as they converge and test their skills against one another. The Mammoth Mountain Unbound crew did a fantastic job of creating options that tested both the mental and physical skills of each rider once again. Their take on a 3-zone set up consisted of a 25 stair set with a concrete creeper down-flat-down ledge, a massive wallride, a creeper rail, a down rail, and a triple drop concrete ledge in zone 1. Zone 2 housed a quadruple kink rail. A 20 stair down rail with donkey on one side with a creeper flat down rail and a metal skate pyramid to chest high down square tube in zone 3. The slew of incredibly trickable features allowed everyone the options they needed to showcase their skills. There was a mind-melting amount of hard way, switch, and gap tricks that were hard to comprehend yet kept the crowd cheering for more. These riders had to dig deep to see who would end the day with their part of the $17,000 cash purse and the title of 2015 Global PBRJ Champion!
Cooper Whittier was a crowd favorite the entire day. He was riding with such insane prowess and smiling the entire time. Here he blasts a floated bs lipslide from the metal skate pyramid on the backside of this rail in zone 3. It was one of our favorite tricks we saw all day long.
Drayden Gardner locks into a fs 180 sw 50-50 sw bs 360 out on the sizeable 25 stair set in zone 1. He had no shortage of technicality throughout as he captured 3rd place in the 15 & Under Division.
Judd Henkes musters up the strength to fs 180 sw 50-50 sw bs 360 out of this neck high rail, at least to him, in zone 3. Judd continued to impress with smooth unforced style in all zones to become the 2015 Peanut Butter and Rail Jam Champion in the 15 & Under Division.
Zach Zajac centers out this cab 270 fs boardslide in zone 1. His no holds barred ripping pushed him into 3rd place in the 16 – 21 Division.
Eli Lamm sending a gap fs boardslide in zone 3 that nearly destroyed him on his first attempt. We gave him “Dancing With The Devil” award for staying in one piece.
Garrett McKenzie flexed this tail press to the end of the quad kink and finishes with a fs 360 out in zone 2. He also landed a notable bs 360 50-50 fs 180 out on the long 25 stair rail in zone 1.
Jake Colman left an impression on the judges with this gap hw 270 bs lip to the last down of the quad kink in zone 2. The East Coast powerhouse continued to dominate in all 3 zones in order to claim global PBRJ victory in the 16 – 21 Division.
Ivika Jürgenson settles into a fs 180 switch nose press down the 25 stair set in zone 1. She battled the other features a little bit but in the end pulled through with a solid performance no doubt.
Volcom’s Elena Hight was hyped to see Missy McAlpin’s no comply bs boardslide through the quad kink in zone 2. Missy earned the “Wild Style” award after landing it before time ran out.
Mariah Dugan takes the path less traveled as she hits the creeper rail in zone 3 with a 50-50 bs 180 out. She also hit the zone 1 creeper rail with a bs 50-50 fs 360 out and the zone 2 quad kink rail with a massive gap lipslide to solidify the top stop in the Girls Division.
Pizza, Cookies, Rev'd Bars, and PB+J's provided smiles and good times for all.
The kids went nuts as they sounded the horns and splashed through the natural pond skim during lunch!
Buzz Holbrook fired off this method lipslide to the last down of the quad kink and gap bs 450’d to fs board too. He was rocking and rolling throughout the finals to receive a brand new Fender Stratocaster for his efforts.
Jed Sky landed a plethora of tricks throughout the day including this perfect sw bs lipslide on the tall square tube in zone 3, a half cab nose press bs 360 out on the quad kink in zone 2, and a hw fs 360 bs 50-50 gapped to the 3rd drop of the concrete waterfall ledge in zone 1.
Samm Neumann hits the Electric California pommel horse feature with a bs 180 sw 50-50 sw bs 270 in to collect the $1000 bounty of “Gooyest Move of the Event.”
Mike Skiba shows proper form on this hw 270 bs lipslide to regular on the down rail in zone 2. Mike knows that the little things standout and the judges took notice of his exit.
Jed Sky landed a plethora of tricks throughout the day including this perfect sw bs lipslide on the tall square tube in zone 3, a half cab nose press bs 360 out on the quad kink in zone 2, and a hw fs 360 bs 50-50 gapped to the 3 drop of the concrete waterfall ledge in zone 1.
Matt Shaffer has a knack for doing the unfathomable when it comes to spinning into rails. Here he gaps a fakie fs 270 boardslide to the last portion of the quad kink in zone 2.
16-Year-Old Benny Milam entered the Open/AM Division to challenge himself and see what he could do riding against the big dogs. He must have out grown his kennel early proving to be top dog with tricks like this bs 360 50-50 fs 360 in zone 1. It’s rare you get to be a Global Champion and get your driver’s license in the same year. Congratulations on a job well done Benny!

On the never-ending hunt for fresh, film-worthy snow, the Blueprint crew went deep, traveling to a freeride paradise in the Alps of northern Italy to explore Alagna & the Aosta Valley. Here Pat Moore, Darrell Mathes, and Danimals, are joined by all-terrain French badass Arthur Longo to sample the regions' big mountain lines that are accessible by chairlift. Bryan Iguchi flies in from Jackson Hole to join the group; tuning in instantly to the crew vibe and the sweet terrain of the Italian sidecountry. Arthur shares his thoughts on balancing competition and filming while ’Guch & Pat talk crew dynamics and the simple pleasure of a session with friends as the group rides everything from lines to legit jumps to mini-shred side-hit.

In case you couldn’t make it to the Season Ender Bender in Grasgehren, Germany, last week, here is what you missed.
As the last event of the season, the ender bender was supposed to be one hell of a day. So the Volcom boys and the shaper gang did their best to make the day as solid as it was.
The day started off with the insane BBQ which we never had before and tons of beer so everyone was pretty hyped from the beginning. As the Grill session went on, the weather got even hotter and the Crododile Pit was ready to surf! People were really going crazy on this obstacle and almost everyone took his chance for a ride through the palm trees, crocodiles and waterbombs! Right next to the Crocodile Pit the shaper crew built up the Sea Snakerail where the riders pulled out hammers to get some Volcom goodies. As a special of the day we equiped the riders with some foam guns and chased them all together through the Baked Slalom, the Crocodile Pit and the Sea Snake rail.
Thanks to all the people who showed up! Thanks to Tajo Seefried and the Snowpark Grasgehren Team, Meckatzer Beer, Killerfish Energy and all the other helping hands!
